(Hold On To What Rightly Belongs To You)
TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 6:12
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
I once heard of a man who bought a brand new car, took it home and dented it all around so it won’t appear new to people. He didn’t want the neighbourhood to know he was rich enough to acquire a new car, because he lived in fear of the criminals in the society and thought they would come after him for being successful. What a terrible way to live!
If you’re born again, you’ve received eternal life and victory over the devil. You’re not supposed to live in fear of the devil and his cohorts. This is the reason God instructs us to live by faith in His Word. The Apostle Paul, in the opening scripture we read, admonished Timothy to fight the good fight of faith. One way to do this is by holding tenaciously to the victory which Christ obtained for you. Don’t let satan rob you of your joy, victory, success, prosperity or potential. Make up your mind to be all that God chose you to be and let nothing stop you. Refuse to be bound by thoughts of fear, and boldly reject anything that negates God’s Word concerning you.
God’s Word gives you confidence, boldness and assurance of victory, success, peace, joy and health. All these and more belong to you in Christ. Don’t compromise them. The good life is yours; prosperity is yours; and most importantly, eternal life is yours. Lay hold on them.
2 Timothy 1:7, Matthew 11:12
The Word of God is alive in me. My life is an unending flow of success, favour and grace. I walk in boldness and refuse to give up the success, favour, prosperity and divine health which is available to me in Christ. I declare that fear is disabled from my life and the works of the devil are paralysed in and around my sphere of contact, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
